that was made back in september of last year, and we talked at that time about arrest reporting in san francisco and specifically about ucr, race reporting and ethnicity reporting. the first two slides are from that presentation just as a refresher what we talked about then and the remaining three are from this presentation. so going back what we talked about is why we were reporting the way we were reporting -- what race codes we were choosing and why, and what i wanted at that time is that we report crime by race according to the california department of justice, which is the middle box. the california department of justice requires that we report the races that you see there, and they define hispanic as an ethnicity, not a race. that's why you didn't see it as one of our race codes. you see it in order so the white house of management and budget has made a change to the race codes so they now include what you see there. white, black, american indian, alaskan, and pacific islanders -- i don't know how they occur but that's what they are currently. california department of justice is stil
